First one to comment, and I’m super excited about this because the Half-Blood Prince was slightly disappointing with a PG-rating!!!

Yes, Hermione just can’t be tortured at a PG. It’s good that it’s rated here, assuming it’s properly-earned and accurate.

yesssss! this must mean that they didn’t water-down some of the scarier aspects of the book (hopefully)!

no little kids shouting annoying things in the theater! :) HBP was terrible because of that.. when ron was poisoned little kids were yelling ‘is he dead?’ it was so irritating.

Yay!
When i saw HBP people actually laughed when Ron was poisioned! I remember turning round in my seat thinking ’what’s happened, has someone walked in wearing a clown costume?’ I just couldn’t believe they laughed at that bit! Which is why i’m so excited to go to the midnight showing, i have a feeling all the people there will know the books as well as i do and won’t be laughing at the wrong places.

thank god. it was such a relief to read in the set reports, i think it was david barron, talk about how they knew it would be PG-13 all the way, the filmmakers and warner brothers, so that’s awesome because honestly, HBP could have been more violent and it felt like they pulled it back for the PG, which is such a dangerous game cause sometimes you pull it back and you kill it. should be awesome!

Yay! I like this rating, means I can see it without annoying 5 year old’s in the seat in front of me yelling “Is she [katie bell] dead yet?” “What’s happening?” “WHY IS IT SNOWING?!?!”(at the Hogsmeade bit).

I’m just glad it’s not PG…. I figured it wasn’t going to get R, so PG-13 seems fine to me.

I would have been extremely concerned if it didn’t get a PG-13 rating.
